Hi!
I'd like to have some help to find two of my ancestors in Wisconsin. It's two siblings named:

Hilma Justina Andersson born in 1886 (or possibly 1887) in Lysvik or Ekshärad in Värmland, Sweden. Hilma traveled by boat from Gothenburg  (Mars 29th 1907) to US and went to live in Superior, Wisconsin. She was 20 when she came to US.

Her brother:
Alfred Andersson was born in 1879 in Lysvik in Värmland, Sweden. He also traveled from Gothenburg but he went there several years earlier. On 11th May 1903 to be exact.

Both Hilma and Alfred traveled alone to US. They where unmarried at the time and they left their parents and other siblings in Södra Skoga where they had lived for some time.

My connection to these siblings is via my grandmothers mother on my mothers side of the family. Their sister is my connection to them.

Can anyone help me? I would love to have contact with the descendants to both these people =)

Toodles!

Maybe you'll need their parents aswell, I don't know if it helps any though.

Their parents was:
Anders Persson born 1851 in Lysvik, Värmland, Sweden.
His wife Maria Persdotter born 1848 in Lysvik, Värmland, Sweden.

Tell me if there's anything more you need!
Cheers

Dear Vargen,

I have several ancestors from Varmlands, Sweden. from about 1736 to 1839. 

Elisabeth (Lisa) Edqvist was born 14 Dec. 1836 in Sweden. She left her husband, Erik Johan Stenqvist, and emigrated to the United States, arriving at New York City in Jan. of 1980. After a few years, she, her son, and two daughters settled in Chicago. The son changed his name from Carl Johan Stenqvist to Charles J. Stonequist. Wilhelmina (Mina) married Nels Sandberg. Erika Marie married (1st) Samuel Samuelson, and (2nd) Erik Gustav Dahlberg. Elisabeth died 4 Sept. 1911 in Covert, Van Buren Co., Michigan.

 

I have a few suggestions:

  • Have you read "Cradled in Sweden"  Carl-Erik Johansson . I have the book and its a great book for research in Sweden. 

I hope these are helpful.

My previous posting to you was taken from Emibas, a Swedish Immigration database.  From here you can go back  rather easily.  I see though you want to find descendants of them.  Well you will note that there is a listing to contact the Swedish Emigrant Register in Karlstad.  I would recommend, this usually means they have additional information on these people. Could be letters of someone else lookng for the family? or other researchers trying to connect.  Or it could be not much in additional data, but its a start.

This is their website, they are quite helpful especially for Varmland.

Janet, I already have that information you've given me.
I have no clue of where to look for them in the US nor what kind of sites. In another immigration database is said that the brother went to Ashland, Wisconsin. But I don't know where to look to find him in any censuses or what so ever. 

Gwynn, your links might have been helpful if I was looking for them in Sweden. But I'm not. Thank you anyway :)

As for finding my grandmothers mothers siblings (Alfred and Hilma) I already have all the information from before they left Sweden. I live in Sweden, so it's no problem finding them in the Swedish records. I only have a problem with finding them in the US, I don't know which records to look at. This is irritating me. It's just like the first time one started with family research. I don't find a f-ing thing. It's the same with a few ancestors that came from Norway. I can't find them in any records at all. But that doesn't belong here.


The point is I don't know where to look for Alfred and Hilma after they arraived to the US. That's where I hit a brick wall.

I did find an Alfred Andersson in 1905 living in Ashland City in the Wisconsin State Census who appears to be the correct age.  I would suggest that you start with Familysearch.org and limit your search to the places where you know they have lived.  Do you have any idea who Hilma married, or who Alfred married? 

The Alfred you found isn't "my" Alfred. Both him and his parents where born in Sweden, and so were all their ancestors. But I'll try familysearch, although I don't trust that site (don't know why though).

For what I know both Alfred and Hilma left Sweden alone with no husband or wife. I have no clue if they married or with whom they married.
